Creative students could win as much as $500 for developing a video about the Magna Carta. The video contest is sponsored by the West Virginia Department of Education and the West Virginia State Bar.

Participants are asked to create a 3-minute video with the theme "The Magna Carta: What It Means Today." The contest is open to West Virginia residents in grades 6 through 12. Entries will be divided by middle school and high school. First place in each category receives $500, while second place wins $250. The creators of the first place videos (along with one parent) also will be invited to attend the West Virginia State Bar's annual meeting on April 3 at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
